    Not essential Gaiman, but still worth getting.

    So obviously, I love Neil Gaiman. After reading an 800-page book, a book of short stories sounded phenomenal. Writing a cohesive, encompassing review sounds pretty difficult, so I'm having issues justifying my rating. I can say that I was hovering around three stars until I got sucked into Black Dog, the final story. Each piece is clearly independent of the others, and there's a nice mixture of short story and poetry. But some of the pieces went over my head and were not as enjoyable. Some were properly creepy, and most of them are in my favorite list. However, the following list represents my favorite pieces (the ones that really stuck with me for one reason or another) from the book: -Orange -A Calendar of Tales -Click-Clack the Rattlebag -Nothing O'Clock (Dr Who) -Feminine Endings -The Sleeper and the Spindle -Black Dog If you like Neil Gaiman and you're in the mood for short stories, this is nice. But I don't think it's something you have to read, if you catch my drift.

    A bit let down

    I expected this to be as densely packed with Gaiman goodies like Fragile Things but it wasn't. There were gems but they were few. Still I love Neil's work and will still wait excitedly for new ones.
